Romeo and Juliet, babies born hours apart, celebrate with Shakespearean photo shoot

Romeo and Juliet, the two newborns who were born hours apart in the same hospital last week, celebrated their birth in the absolute best way — a Shakespearean photo shoot!

Cassie Clayshulte, a photographer at the South Carolina hospital, snapped the beautiful photos of the newborns in Elizabethan-era attire.

Newborns Romeo and Juliet were born in the same South Carolina hospital earlier this month.

In case you missed it, the incredible story emerged out of Coastal Carolina Hospital in Hardeeville, near Hilton Head, last week.

Parents Morgan and Edwin Hernandez welcomed their baby boy, whom they named Romeo, on March 19.

Eighteen hours later, Christiana and Allen Shifflett welcomed a baby girl, Juliet — right down the hall at the same hospital.

The parents initially had no idea about the funny coincidence.

Morgan Hernandez, Romeo’s mother, told TODAY they actually choose the name Romeo before they knew they were expecting.

“My husband and I have listened to an artist named Romeo Santos for years,” she told TODAY in an email. “We love his music and the name ‘Romeo’ was the only name we both 100 percent agreed upon.”
